A home business is by far the best way to support yourself if you just cannot stand working for others for less money than you need to survive. It's also the best way to get out of a good paying job that just takes up too much of your precious short life working for someone else.
Let's face it, you probably know someone who has a home business. Do they look happy to you? Do they complain as much about work and money as you do? Probably not.
This is not to say that you should quit your job and start a home business. You should start one while you still have your job. Some people complain that this is hard and takes up too much of their free time. In the beginning a home business is not profitable – you have to work at it like anything else.
Some people eventually go back to work blaming some program or home business opportunity that wasted their time and didn't work. Unfortunately, the odds are actually that they didn't work hard enough and stick to their dreams. Many people allow themselves to believe that there are no legitimate home businesses. It's easier to go to work thinking this than to let themselves truly believe that a home business is possible, profitable, or liberating.
But if you truly believe there are no good home businesses, that they are all scams, then what are the thousands of people doing everyday in your hometown driving around during work hours?
You know the ones. The people you see on your day off that are driving around and standing in line in places you frequent on your days off. They can't ALL be on their days off too! You have wondered, just like I did, what it is these people do. I know you have.
Many of them have their own home business. Many of the people you see at the post office who know the clerks by first name are shipping packages of goods they sold on auction at eBay or their own websites.
The cars parked in the county clerk's office in your home town. Some are employees there, but not all of them. Many of the people coming and going from that office in your town (during business hours when everyone should be working, right?) Are real estate brokers, or no money down buyers and sellers looking up local property information.
Home business owners are all around you, everyday. The home business industry is quite literally booming and is getting larger exponentially by the month.
The worst thing you could ever do to yourself, that is a life-altering belief system, is let yourself believe it is all a scam or that there is no room for YOUR creativity and YOUR value as a home business owner of any kind!
Take me for instance! I own my own website and I sell information, business tools for home business people who work on the internet, and services of all kinds. I work from home. I am one of those people you see during the week driving around town while you wonder what it is I do for a living. Nice to meet you!
